Marriage is a social institution. Therefore, a lot of individuals place a lot of importance on it. Additionally, 'Love Marriage vs. Arranged marriage' is a dilemma.

E-cigarettes are a great source of help to smokers who are willing to quit. But a new analysis in the US has found out that the number of times you use them plays a major role in the success ratio.
